WOOF – San Francisco Animal Care & Control and Community Housing Partnership

Film by Irene Gustafson, 2012. WOOF (Wonderful Opportunities for Occupants and Fidos) is a unique foster program of San Francisco Animal Care & Control, in collaboration with the Community Housing Partnership (CHP), and the Mayor’s Office, to give both dogs and residents of permanent supportive housing a second chance to live fuller, happier, and healthier lives. After a six-week training course, two of the dogs from the program (Sheba and Shea) will be adopted by their fosters, and the other two (Dexter and Chula) will be available for adoption at ACC. The pilot program involved a rigorous screening of applicants (8 were chosen from 40 who applied) and training sessions were held three times a week. At the end of the six-week class (9/21/2012), two of the dogs from the program (sisters Sheba and Shea) will be adopted by their fosters, and the other two dogs (Dexter and Chula) will be available for adoption at ACC.
